Hangman Game

This is a python project that brings the word game Hangman to the terminal.

Rules to play the game

If you have not played the game before, here are the rules:

  1. Play individually or in groups.
  2. You will be provided with an unknown word, which has to be guessed. You will be provided with a hint for the word and also the number of letters in it.
  3. Select a letter of the alphabet, which you think might be present in the word.
  4. If the letter is present in the word, continue to guess the rest of the letters.
  5. If the letter isn’t present in the word, you will get a penalty, which results in striking off one letter of the word HANGMAN.
  6. After 7 wrong guesses, no letters remain in the word HANGMAN to be striked off. If you haven’t guessed the given word correctly before reaching this stage, you LOSE.
  7. You can also get to guess the whole word, if you have an idea. If you guess it correctly, you WIN, else another penalty, i.e., strike off a letter from the word HANGMAN.
